Houghton Regis Academy

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

We are delighted to announce that Houghton Regis Academy will be launching the Bronze Award from September 2018 for current Year 8 and Year 9 students.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is the world’s leading achievement award for young people, and is highly regarded by Universities, Colleges and Employers. It encourages young people to develop independence, commitment, leadership and teamwork through being involved in a personalised programme of activities. Houghton Regis Academy fully supports the award and recognises its unique value for developing these skills and attributes in our young people.

On Monday 18th June we will be presenting a launch assembly to the Year 8 and 9 students and we will be hosting an information evening for parents at Houghton Regis Academy on Tuesday 26th June from 5-6pm, so please do come along to hear more about the programme, meet the staff involved in running it, and ask any questions.
